I started with Round Dancing in 2002, but my first experience with dancing came 10 years earlier when I was 3 years old. Since those days I have tried out quite a few different styles of dancing including ballroom competitions.
I have been cueing and teaching since 2007 in two Round Dance clubs in Prague. I am also teaching at most of the RD specials in Czech Republic and Slovakia. You can also see me as a dancer at some specials in Germany (European Round Dance Week, Rieneck). I am cueing, teaching and dancing up to phase VI, but I enjoy hashcue up to phase IV the most. My favorite rhythms for dancing are waltz, tango and rumba and for hashcueing chacha, waltz and two-step.

At my workshops I am trying to pass on as much technique and fun as possible. I’ll be glad to see you at my sessions.

I have begun dancing in 1989 in Plzeň in Virgina dancing club. It was mostly classic country dancing, but during that year a new style appeared in Czech Republic - the square dance. A year later, I established a new dance club in my hometown - Nýrsko - and we named it Tennessee. And to these days, I still teach country, square and round dance in that same club, despite the fact that it moved to Klatovy. Beside the club, I organize several classes in the Klatovy cultural center: country for seniors, square dance (MS), round dance (phase II-IV). I also organize a country dance class for children in Nýrsko.

Every year I create at least three different choreographies for performances at local events - with kids, seniors and our club. I also create round dance choreographies. The very first one was "It's My Life" cha cha. Among my other choreographies are Top of the World, Eye Level, Si Te Vas, Best in Me, It Is You (Shrek), Jesse, Loosing My Religion, Mariela, and many others.

I teach and call/cue for my own pleasure and joy. I love fun and company of nice people. See you in Bratislava!

My name is Pavel Hosenseidl, but for the dancers I'm known more as a Hop. I start with dancing in 1989, but I didn't stop till now. Im started with square dance and shortly then with Round dance (when come to the Czech republic).  Im cuing from 1990 year an I'm one from the first cuers in Czech republic. I'm active from this time till now, I'm cueing mostly on local events (in Czech), sometimes also in any events in  Europe (eg. RD weekend in England, EU convention in Kladno, special dance in Russia). I have experience to teach and making own choreographies in phase IV-V, but I'm able to cue till from phase I to phase VI.  Currently I'm a leader of a small RD club "Grasshoppers" in Prague.

I have been ballroom dancing since I was 17 years old; I have started out as a successful dancer and later become a dance teacher. I was introduced to Round Dance in 1991 and have been teaching it since 1994. Working with Dostavník Brno dance club, we have been organising intense Round Dance workshops since 1995, where most Round dancers in Czech republic and Slovakia learned the foundations of round dance. This is also where such local cuer stars as the Pátíks, the Valtýnis, Soňa Dušková, Matyáš Brenner and others started out. Besides dance teaching, I have authored several Round Dance and other choreographies. In Dostavník Brno, we organise a beginner course every year as well as more advanced courses. When teaching and performing, I take advantage of both my ballroom dancing background and experience gained at Round Dance events abroad. I believe I have a lot to offer to Round dancers at the 2nd Slovak Convention.

I was born in Bratislava and like most of my peers I had attended traditional highschool ballroom dance classes. I was at university in Brno when I discovered Round Dance, in October 2003. I noted its variability and the vast possibilities of combinations of figures. The leader of Dostavník RDC, Rosťa Kučera, gave me a chance to try it behind the microphone and make up these combinations for others. I've cued and taught since 2005 and for the last 7 years I have been a club cuer in Karolína SDC Bratislava. I cue almost anything up to phase IV and selected choreographies at phase V and VI. I love hashcueing. My preferred rhythms are cha-cha and waltz. My dance and life partner is Gabika (also a cuer).
